Thanks for your interest Gan - but the limited spots filled up almost instantly :(

Hang fire - Im sure a public release inst a million miles off :)

Hey Geek - just a quick check in to say we're working with it and we'll have some idiot-proofing (that IS what you hired us for, no?) commentary soon. Making my list...

One quick question. I searched for "subscribe" and didn't find any info in this thread.

How are members initially subscribed to the newsletters?

Like if you have 10,000+ members who haven't opted in to any mailings, will there be a way for them to click one link and subscribe (like if the admin was to send a mass PM to all members).

When you create a newsletter, you have the option to automatically subscribe all members to it. THen if they are in the usergroup list for the newsletter, they will get one. There is also a tool that allows you to mass update users email format and which newsletters they are subscribed to.

Thanks for clarifying that.

I wouldn't feel comfortable mass subscribing all members to a newsletter. People are very sketchy about spam these days...even on a forum they registered for.

But if I could send them a Private Message through the forum with a link that allows them to easily subscribe, they would know that they aren't on any "lists", and they have the choice to subscribe if they want forum updates via a newsletter.

Could I suggest that as a feature for the release :)? That way we can promote responsible email marketing and allow members to opt in.

Is is possible to output calendar events into a module so its shown in the newsletter as an Event Calendar/Agenda with upcoming events?

The Geek 04-27-2007 08:01 AM

It would be, but a module doesnt exist for that yet :)

Just a usability note. When I visit: http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php

I think I would expect to see a list of newsletters that have been sent out, with hyperlinked titles with some text next to it showing the date it was sent.

Right now, when I look at: http://www.thevbgeek.com/newsletter.php

I'm not exactly sure what I'm seeing. Is that the current newsletter that was published?

If so, where exactly do I click to see previous newsletters?
